Distinctions should be made between coarse particulate carbon or @[email protected] (larger than about $$100\ \unicode[Times]{x3BC}\text{m}$$, but smaller than about $$1\ \text{cm}$$ in average size), fine particulate carbon or powder or flour (between $$1$$ and $$100\ \unicode[Times]{x3BC}\text{m}$$ in average size) and @[email protected] (below approximately $$1\ \unicode[Times]{x3BC}\text{m}$$ in size in at least one direction), e.g. @[email protected] and @[email protected]
